The Scientific Indian

Six years since Gujarat Earthquake

Life goes on but what a loss.(thanks Ramya) I was in Bhuj after the quake. We passed through village after village and saw not a single structure standing. It was devastation on a scale I’ve never seen before. One of my friend said that it was like a curse. If you were a believer that is a succint description of the carnage.

I am sure Bhuj people have recovered. I saw how resourceful they were.

This is also the day India was constituted and came into existence as a soverign secular socialist democratic republic nation. Have a thoughtful day.

    1950: India becomes a republic

    The independent republic of India is officially born today, after nearly 100 years of British rule.
    A public holiday has been declared throughout the country, and millions of people have been celebrating with processions and ceremonies to hoist the new flag of India for the first time.
